Rotundo, Carlo (author)
The ever-growing aerospace industry's urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions has ignited a surge of interest in hybrid or fully electric propulsion systems. The electrification of aircraft introduces the possibility for energy to be recovered during phases of flight where no power input is required, and previous research has demonstrated...

The aviation industry confronts challenges from increased air traffic and environmental concerns. Enhancing engine efficiency becomes crucial due to persistent greenhouse gas emissions from air travel, particularly in long flights with high CO2 emissions. Higher by-pass ratios (BPR) can address this by boosting engine propulsive efficiency, yet...

A prototype lunar rover is in development by students of the TU Delft since 2017. It is a nanorover based on the terrestrial ZeBRo design, now named the Lunar Zebro. The Lunar Zebro is a prototype design as a proof of concept for nanorover capabilities. With a chassis of 200 by 140 by 60 millimeters, fitting on a sheet of A5 paper, the Lunar...

Martinez Palacio, Maria Daniela (author)
The rapid growth in building stock and the demand for new construction present significant challenges in terms of material scarcity, waste production, and greenhouse gas emissions. To address these challenges, a fundamental shift in the construction industry's approach is needed, viewing waste as a resource through circularity principles. This...

<b>Problem definition:</b> In the car park industry, a new trend has emerged, shifting the demand for parking from permanent one-of-a-kind parking structures towards temporary modular structures (Drenth, 2020). Meanwhile, the building industry faces a transition into a more sustainable industry. This requires rethinking of the design process,...

This research aims to improve the structural safety of wide floor slabs with openings due to embedded non-structural elements. The multidisciplinary design of these slabs has resulted in various safety issues, including errors in the design due to the absence of a calculation method and insufficient integration between designs of different...

The climate emergency calls for a global shift towards a low-carbon economy, to preserve natural resources and biodiversity, while limiting global warming and its consequences. This project focuses on the impact of distribution centres, intended for the storage of commercial goods. Warehouses are characterised by large flexible spaces and simple...

Considering current trends in the Netherlands with regards to sustainability, there is a strong desire at Delft University of Technology to incorporate sustainable structural design strategies in the civil and structural engineering curriculum. Based on literature study and own experiences in practice, a coherent approach was developed, that can...

The technical solutions and design strategies for deconstruction are reviewed and investigated in the building sector in order to achieve the sustainability goals set in the EU Commission´s “Green Deal” towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The demountable and reusable steel–concrete composite structures could contribute...

The steel sector is responsible for 4-5% of the total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. Reusing structural steel elements can potentially decrease the need for the production of new steel. However, designing a load-bearing structure with reusable elements poses challenges to the design process. The starting point of the process is different...

The buildings construction industry is demanded to reduce its ecological footprint to mitigate its contribution to climate change. In this context, a novel sustainable design strategy for the reuse of timber was developed in this Master thesis. The design strategy focuses on the utilization of the material “reclaimed timber” (RT) in the...

Alberts Coelho, Alexsander (author)
The building stock and the construction industry combined are responsible for a large share of greenhouse gases emissions. At the same time, every year tons of wood, paper and agricultural residues are wasted instead of recycled and upcycled into the production chain. In the fabrication field, the relevance of additive manufacturing processes is...

The main purpose of this report is to investigate flaws within Cornelis Tromp 25T lemniscate crane upper arm joint. This is done in order to figure out why the joint structure is experiencing significant crack propagation and what potentially could have led to a structural joint failure and death of an operator within a crane of the same model....

The demountable and reusable steel-concrete composite structures contribute immensely at the sustainable development in construction. The main technical practice which allows for demountability and reusability is the use of demountable shear connectors in their floor systems. These demountable shear connectors can satisfy the need for composite...

The form freedom enabled by digital fabrication with concrete technologies provides advantages for a wide range of concrete based objects, from architectural to structural elements. The current chapter focuses on the specifics of structural design and engineering of DFC with emphasis on those technologies based on Additive Manufacturing with...

This research tries to answer the question which construction material, concrete or timber, is best to use during the construction of terraced housing in the Netherlands, based on the environmental performance. Existing studies often do not take all aspects of a design for the comparison into account, or have a bias toward one material. In order...

Politicians, scientific researchers and companies all know; the transition to a Circular Economy [CE] should start now, or actually should have started yesterday. The CE is an economic system that replaces the current take-make-waste linear system and replaces this with the reduction, reuse and recovering of resources. The challenge is to build...

Kroes, Amarins (author)
Buildings influence the environment due to the emission of greenhouse gases, energy use, water consumption, and waste generation. The load-bearing structures of buildings also have a significant share in these emissions. Currently, European and national regulations oblige to focus on sustainability in designs as well. In this research, it is...

The objective of this project is to devise and develop a design tool that lets the user explore different force flows during conceptual design, with the goal to inform different geometries, thereby realizing an integrated design process. Key characteristics that this tool must incorporate to be successful are defined as feedback (the ability to...
